You’re looking at

the many noble rabbits

who have served as

the Easter Bunny.

If you've ever

gotten a basket of candy

and colored eggs

on Easter morning,

you have them to thank.

Yes, even that guy.

See, every bunny dreams of holding the

title, but not just anyone can do it.

You have to be majestic.

You have to be dignified.

You have to be, well, a bunny.

Or, at least you did.

Hi. I'm Fred O'Hare,

the first human Easter Bunny.

Sounds insane, you say?

It'll make sense once you know

how it all went down.

Where are you?

Hi, Dad!


Oh! There you are.

Son! I was thinking.

You are getting so big, you're

practically a foot tall.

Over a foot,

if you count the ears.

I always

count the ears.

So, how would you like to

go to work with me today?

Would I?

That sounds awesome.

I said the same thing when my father

first took me to the factory.

I didn't use the word "awesome," but...

Down, please.

Thank you. Go ahead, Son.

Oh, careful! E.B., welcome

to the Easter Factory.

This is where we make

all the candy and eggs

that I deliver to

the children of the world.

It's pretty impressive,

isn't it?

It's amazing, Dad!

I'm glad you like it, because

someday this will all be yours.


Now, come on, Son.

There's so much to see.

Daddy, what do you

call that thingamajig?

Ah, the Marshmallow

Chick Machine.

Loved them since

I was your age.

When your grand-dad,

the Easter Bunny before me,

took me on this

very same tour...


Hello, little bunny.

What are you doing?

We don't eat the candy.

We make the candy!

But I thought...


This is my second-in-command,


It's fine, Carlos. E.B. was, uh,

taste-testing.Isn't that right, Son?

Yup, I'm taste-testing.

It's great.

Oh, dear me. No, no.

Son, we're going to have

to work on your taste.

Carlos, too much marsh,

not enough mellow.

Exactly, seor, I was

just going to say that.

Phil! Too much marsh,

not enough mallow!

Phil! Phil!


Hi, boss.

No dancing on the job!

It's forbidden.

Yes, sir. I'm very bad.

I am so sorry, seor.

I will deal with this personally.

Yes. Easter is right

around the corner, Carlos.

There is no room for error.

Si, seor.

Remember this, E.B.,

we can't make any mistakes.

The entire world

is counting on us.

This seems hard, Dad.

And I don't know if I can do it.

Oh, come now.

Don't you worry, Son.

Yes, it's a big responsibility,

but you'll be ready.

You'll have to be.

Why, in a few years you will

pick up the Egg of Destiny

and receive the magical powers

of the Easter Bunny.

Now, let's move on.

Bye, Carlos.

Okay, ciao.

See you later.

Enjoy your life of privilege,
